Rajesh & Piyush, Uneditioned Art
Uneditioned– The word itself defines our objectives of opening this firm, the word does not exist in urban dictionaries, but does exist in our heads. It’s an initiative by two art enthusiastic who are driven by creativity in all fields of life. For us, uneditioned means, art without edition, something that is unique, compelled by our creativity, our own ways of doing things, our lifestyle, beam Piyush Agarwal and Rajesh of Uneditioned Art.
It’s been five years, since the art college pass-outs have established a journey of transforming many spaces through paintings and wall tattoos. The spaces essentially include restaurants, offices, retail stores, homes and public spaces. We have also done some events, live paintings and graffiti’s in open spaces. “For now, we are into wall paintings, graffiti’s, canvas paintings, installations, product designing, sculpture, stop motion, printmaking, and most importantly conceptualization of design,” Rajesh and Piyush informed.
Some of the noteworthy projects by the firm include, Laat Saab in which the theme was based on India during British reign and on Indian cultural values, where the kitchen was turned into a train of 1870’s. “The banta bottle kept in the bar area was properly researched, as very few people know that it was also originated during British period in India. The logo was designed to look like a wax seal, which was highly in demand during the British rule. The painting of the famous Nataraja, the colonial map of India, installation of guns and deer head, everything was decided according to the theme, representing the culture of India,” Piyush explained.
Addams’s house was another restaurant inspired by the visuals from the movie Addams’s Family. Uneditioned created a 3D painting, graffiti, a library with novels, an installation with records, sculptures to do justice to the concept, enhancing the subversive humour pertaining the characters. Uneditioned also did a project with SA Infra Consultancy Pvt. Ltd. which used photographs of noted highways of India. “An abstract rice paper painting with sketches of construction by us adorned the space,” the duo add.
Uneditioned has worked with materials like fiberglass, wood, painting, p.o.p, and has also dabbled in the art of sculptures. The artist duo has participated in exhibitions
like Kochi Biennale, India Design, Aifacs, Lalit Kala Akademi, Jahangir Art Gallery and have received several awards in fine art and drawings. The duo rendered their prowess in community paintings and social work at different locations such as Select City Walk, Delhi, Tihar Jail, Delhi, Jantar Mantar etc. Currently, Uneditioned is the process of developing products for home décor.
